True freshman Sen. Tommy Tuberville, R-Ala., told Newsmax TV he'll kick off his career in the U.S. Senate with a "doozy" — the former Auburn University football coach will be on a team of Republicans who plan to object to electors in contested states as electoral votes are certified in a joint session of Congress on Wednesday.
"What a way to start out my first day as senator," Tuberville Tuesday on "Spicer & Co."
The game plan, he told hosts Sean Spicer and Lindsay Keith, is for Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, to object when Arizona's electors are announced, and for Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., to object to Pennsylvania's slate of electors.
Both states will officially cast their electoral votes for Democrat Joe Biden, who was declared president-elect in December following after the Electoral College vote. But President Donald Trump has alleged massive voter fraud in those states, as well as in Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, and Wisconsin.
Tuberville said there's no plan past Arizona and Pennsylvania other than just seeing how things play out. Just like in a football game, "You don't wanna get into a third and 20 or 30 situation," he said.
Members of the House and Senate are acting in support of President Trump, Tuberville said, but also for election integrity for whoever runs in future elections. He admitted that could be Trump in four years if their efforts fail Wednesday.
Overall, with each objection adding up to two hours of debate time to the process, Tuberville said he's ready for his opening session to be a long one.
"I'm gonna bring a sleeping bag," he said. "I've been in five overtimes before. I know how it goes."
